Hi! I booked Kevin for my wedding on August 25th, with pretty short notice , and lucked out that he was available. I knew I did not want a DJ, I am not huge into dancing, it was a daytime event and the venue was intimate, for about 50 people. I fell in love with his music when I stumbled across a video of him playing and singing on youtube. He was exactly what I wanted and I am so glad I booked him, he was worth every single penny spent. I was a very laid back bride, and provided him with no other information other than what I wanted my first dance song to be. He is the professional, and I let him do his thing. And he did it, beautifully. All of my guests loved him and can't stop talking about how great he was. He kept in touch with me, and always returned my calls/texts when I needed him. I would 100% recommend him to anyone and can't wait to have another reason to use him myself in the future.
I couldn't have asked for anyone more talented, professional, attentive. From the first email requesting his availability through our Wedding Event, Kevin was amazing. Nothing I asked of him was an issue, always a yes person, and completely focused on providing us with the kind of music we wanted. From choosing all songs from his song list, to every single song we wanted on a playlist for his breaks and dancing, he delivered. Love this guy. Would without a doubt call on him again for another big event !
Kevin was on time and performed exactly as I saw in his videos, he performed with class and was a wonderful addition to our event. He contributed to the VIP status of our cocktail event and everyone thoroughly enjoyed his music and talent. Would definitely hire again!!
Kevin Laurence is a professional entertainer every step of the way. Our wedding reception was so much fun, thanks to him. Our guests knew every song he played on the piano and he sang so beautifully. We are grateful to Kevin for providing such a truly great experience for our wedding reception!
Kevin is a dream. So easy to work with and such a talented artist. List of songs is extensive and varied. He provided music for the ceremony component. Would recommend him for any and all events. We hope to work with him again in the future.
Kevin sang great piano renditions of great 80s songs for my wife's 80s themed 40th birthday party. He was very professional and interacted well with my guests. I would definitely recommend his services. He arrived early to set up and was very professional the whole time.
We had Kevin at our corporate function in Miami and had a great time. Kevin provided nice background music during dinner and then after dinner we had a fun karaoke/dancing session that all the participants really enjoyed! Very talented and professional.
Kevin was beyond amazing! He sang every song we could have imagined and even learned two new songs for us! All of our guests couldn't stop talking about him. He made a special day even better.
Excellent, far exceeded our expectations. Can’t say enough good things about his piano playing and singing ability. Would highly recommend him for any event!
Kevin is a must hire for your event. His repertoire is extensive and his voice is fabulous. We were thrilled with him and we look forward to his next gig for us!! He was the highlight of our recent event. He keep the songs coming and gave us an evening to remember.
Kevin is an absolute pleasure to work with. He drove to the other coast for my client and I, showed up well before his call time and was very accommodating to all the client's wishes. On top of that, he is charming and has an amazing voice with the capabilities to sing whatever genre you would like!
Kevin is a true pro. He was extremely easy to communicate with, he got right back to us with all of our questions during the planning phase. His demo videos online helped us decide to book. Kevin showed up early to our event and was an awesome singer and piano player. We couldn’t be happier! Thanks Kevin!
Kevin is an outstanding pianist and singer. He did an amazing job at my party even handling requests. Everyone commented how accommodating he was and how much they enjoyed his music. My only regret is that I’m not planning another party that he can perform at. I think I’m his biggest fan, but I’m certain he has many. He was professional, prompt and just about perfect!
Kevin was absolutely outstanding. He truly made the evening special.
We're still getting rave reviews from our guests, young and old. Already thinking of future functions when we can have Kevin perform again. I can't recommend him enough.
We had Kevin perform during our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Our guests were completely blown away by his talent. He plays a wide variety of songs and is very accommodating with requests. I had a few specific selections for our processional and recessional, which he nailed. He is such a nice person and was a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend and I would definitely book him again!!
Kevin was amazing and I heard many guests mention how great he was after our event. I would 100% recommend him!
It is very hard to write a review of someone who was absolutely perfect for the occasion. Kevin exceeded our greatest expectations and truly provided the impetus for a wonderful evening.
The occasion was a small wedding (40 guests). Kevin played movingly during the ceremony and afterward at the wedding dinner. He not only played the piano and sang but also accompanied a number of quite talented guests who performed during the ceremony and reception.
It is difficult to appeal to age groups spanning many generations but Kevin managed to do it. He truly made the party a huge success. From tears to laughter, Kevin did it all.
He truly is "the piano man"
I commissioned Kevin for an original song. He took the time to really understand what I wanted and guided me through the process. He sat and listened for more than 2 hours as i told him my story and every quark of our life. The end result was exactly what i hoped for. A song that spoke to us and made my wife cry the moment she heard it. It was the best anniversary gift i could have given her and am thrilled to have worked with Kevin on it. I highly recommend Kevin and hope to use his talents again in the future.
We had hired Kevin for our wedding based on reviews and he did not disappoint. He was one of the highlights of the evening. Our guests of all ages, thought he was extremely talented and entertaining. We could have kept listening all night long. We were thrilled how much fun he added to the party. He was also very professional and responsive from our first conversation until the end of the party. We loved that he gave us a song selection before and played all that we requested. We will definitely be contacting him again in the future. We strongly recommend Kevin Laurence, he was spectacular!
So we didn't feel like our review expressed enough detail about how amazing Kevin really is so here is part 2. Kevin was everything we had hoped for and more! We had a destination weekend party on Catalina Island and Kevin was such a delight to work with. He was easy going yet totally professional. He always emailed or texted right back when we contacted him. We had no frazzled nerves when working with Kevin. We knew he had it all under control. He has a wide range of songs and was quick thinking enough to sing requests from our quests. He was the icing on the cake of a milestone birthday and we would hire him again in a heartbeat. We had adult guest of all ages at our party. Everyone kept commenting on how amazing Kevin is. They all wanted to know where we found him and thought he was an old friend because of how well we all fit together. They kept saying "He is such an amazing talent" and "Kevin Laurence is definitely going places!". Now we get to say that we knew Kevin Laurence back in the day. Thank you so much Kevin!! Kevin and Renee MacLeod. Hermosa Beach, CA
Kevin was the entertainer for my husband Kevin's 60th birthday party. He was wonderful, fun and a terrific addition to the party. He was more that just the entertainment. He added so much to the party that all our guests can't stop raving about him! Kevin is so full of talent!! Thanks a million!
Kevin played at our wedding in Naples. We're from the UK but had our wedding in Florida. Kevin was amazing right from first getting in touch with him, he responded straight away to any emails I sent to him. He made everything really easy for us, which was a big help when trying to plan things from overseas. He's every bit as good as in his online videos. And a great guy with it! I could have chatted with him and listened to him play for hours. I sent him a list of songs we liked from his playlist, and he played all of them. Outstanding version of "Piano Man". He played a really good range of songs, we could sit and listen during dinner but then get up and have a good dance in between. All of our guests were incredibly impressed with him, he even let one of them take the mic (sorry about that Kevin!). Without doubt I would recommend Kevin for any kind of event. I wish we were out in the States so I could see him play again. More videos online please for us Brits!
Kevin was absolutely amazing. Received feedback from our guest that he was absolutely amazing. Kevin was extremely easy to work with and very skilled at what he does. I will recommend him to any one with absolutely no doubt.
I hired Kevin to provide music for an outdoor party in our community, with about 70 people attending. This was my second time hiring Kevin -- the first time was for my father's birthday party two months earlier; I was very impressed with his performance then so I hired him again for this party.
Once again, Kevin was a hit. He played a variety of music appropriate for the age range of attendees, a mix of baby boomers and seniors. I overheard one of my neighbors telling Kevin he was the best musician we've ever had for one of these parties (which we have twice a year).
Kevin is also a really nice guy, very easygoing and a pleasure to work with. I plan to hire him again for our future parties. If you're looking for a singer/keyboard player for your party, Kevin is your man!
Thanks to Kevin, our event was more amazing then we could have imagined. Besides being super talented, he was very versatile and went with the flow when our guest of honor wanted to "join the band" for the majority of the show. The booking experience was smooth and stress free, and we highly recommend. Thank you so much for making our night so special.
Kevin was an amazing entertainer and made our party so much better with his music and singing
He was so gracious and everyone commented on how nice he was
I would highly recommend Kevin for music at any type of event/ party
He worked non stop despite me telling to take a break and have some food
Kevin was simply put Amazing!
Kevin made the wedding. All our guests couldn't stop raving about him. He was professional in every sense of the word. He came on time, was prepared, friendly, dressed nicely, and he put on one hell of a show. He played to the crowd and even sang every verse of American Pie at the grooms request! Only thing I am upset about is I am not from Florida so it is unlikely I will get to see him play again.
On time. Professional and responsive. Great vocalist and pianist. Would definitely recommend him.
I was looking for a musician for my dad's 100th birthday party, and found good reviews of Kevin on Yelp. I checked out the music on his web site and was very impressed, so I hired him for my dad's party, and for another social event later this year.
Kevin was very easy to work with, very pleasant and professional, he plays keyboard and sings really well, and he was able to adapt his song list to the older crowd at my dad's party. I'm happy Kevin is available for my upcoming social event and I look forward to hearing him perform again. If you need a musician for your party or event, Kevin is your guy!
We hired Kevin for a Sing-Along event-- he is a very talented singer and pianist. Our members had a great time, and he was very professional and easy to work with.
Kevin was terrific.
Fabulous voice and all over great performance.
Lovely guys as well
Bang for your buck !,.. we negotiated a price for him to do a few songs, he came super early to make sure everything would run smooth. Very pleasant in person, professional. Now its an ongoing gig... Highly recommend this Guy.. HIGHLY!!
Kevin agreed to perform in a very intimate setting on Christmas Eve. He was equally comfortable singing holiday classics for (actually with) the kids as he was pulling out his harmonica for Piano Man. My daughter received a keyboard from Santa the next morning and Kevin's performance set the stage so to speak...
A talented artist and delightful gentleman that I recommend without hesitation.
We hired Kevin to play our wedding and the whole process, from start to finish, was outstanding. He was quick to respond to my emails, very flexible with our requests, showed up early, put on a great set, and was awesome with our guests. We wanted him to play for a couple hours, then run a playlist off of a computer using his sound system. He was totally game with everything we asked him to do, even do a little light emcee work. We asked for a few specific songs, which he happily played, and took requests from the guests - if he knew it, he played it. I would not hesitate to hire him again or recommend him to anyone I know.
We recently hired Kevin To perform for our employees. Everyone at the event love it! What a performer and entertainer! Kevin also helped judge our singing contest. Kevin did such a great job that we extended his contract that night. Thanks again for a great show, Kevin.
Kevin was very talented singer/pianist. Very professional and extremely easy to work with. Provide great entertainment for ours guests and we are happy that we had Kevin on our wedding reception. Highly recommended.
First off, Kevin is AMAZING. I hired him for my sister in-law's baby shower (~40 people) and he was such a hit! My sister in-law is a major fan of The Beatles and Kevin played pretty much all of their music. Let's just say she didn't stop smiling the entire time he was playing!!! In between The Beatles, he would take requests from the party guests and completely WOWED them with his vast knowledge of different musical genres.
Not only was he accommodating he was also unbelievably professional. He showed up early in order to set up all of his equipment, always with a smile on his face.
I highly recommend Kevin Laurence for any and all occasions. You will be blown away!!
I first met Kevin about 3 years ago when I was having dinner at Season 52 in Costa Mesa with some friends and at the time bf (now husband). We were all just so wowed by him so I couldn't help but ask him for his business card on my way out.
About 2 years later, I got engaged and one of the first things I had to do was fish for that business card. I immediately contacted Kevin, even before I started looking at venues. I was surprised he said he remembered me. I'm sure he was completely honest cause he doesn't seem like the lying kind of guy. But if he was lying, he sure had me fooled! The moment we had our date set, I e-mailed him right away to make sure he doesn't fill up that day!
Kevin has such a wide selection of music. I loved how incredibly versatile he was and his voice is so warm and inviting. We hired him to play when the guests starts arriving, the processional, and our cocktail hour. I sent him our music selection about 1-2 month before and a lot of them he did need to learn. But I love how he wasn't pushy in any way to make us pick from his selection of music. He was more concerned that we get the music selection we want and he learned them all for our wedding.
I can't stop getting rave reviews from our guests on how amazing Kevin did. I can't stop raving either about how awesome he is. His rendition of the songs we picked turned out so beautifully, I had tears coming down before I even began walking. Our guests had so much fun interacting with him during cocktail hour. My mother in law was so excited to have him play Piano Man and I really think that's a great signature song for him cause he blew my mind when I first watched it on YouTube. Everyone loved how versatile he is and it makes it really enjoyable for all ages.
I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you hire Kevin for any gigs. His mannerism is so calm and welcoming. He responds to all correspondence very quickly. He's got such a fun and spunky personality. He's incredibly professional. And insanely personable and just down to earth. If you don't hire him, YOU'RE A FOOL!!! =)
Kevin was the little surprise I had for our guests to wow everyone. And he didn't fail me. He was the perfect cherry on top to our wedding!!!
Kevin was extremely professional and played a great variety of songs for a college graduation party. Every age enjoyed his music.
I am in charge of events for the OC Blue Jeans office, and we've hired Kevin on 3 separate corporate occasions because we just can not get enough of this guy! If you are looking for a talented pianist with a great personality, look no further. Kevin is always on time and he has his own equipment. He plays from modern songs to classics - he does not disappoint. Last week we had our delayed holiday party, and he was a TOTAL hit! Its been a week since the party and employees are still asking for his contact info so they could have him for their birthdays etc. Blue Jeans is officially hooked on Kevin :) Can't wait to have him back again - thanks again Kevin.
Kevin Laurence performed for my husband's 40th birthday party and he was a hit. All of our friends and family just loved him and they all want to hire him for their parties. He did a great job and sang all of the songs we all love. We had a great night. Highly recommend him.
I hired Kevin for a company holiday event to perform for 600+ attendees. Everyone raved about not only his talent, but his personality as well. I hired him based solely on reviews that I had read. I was super stressed out because if he wasn't anything short of professional, it would make me look bad. It turned out all the reviews were accurate so I wanted to add one of my own to confirm that you can't go wrong with using Kevin for your professional entertainment needs. We'll definitely be hiring him again for future events - business and personal.
Kevin performed for us and kept my entire party singing along and enjoying the entire evening. He played songs from the 1960s through todays hits with amazing expertise. He is very personable and adaptive to any situation. He showed up early and stayed late. If you get the opportunity to have Kevin play at your event I know you will enjoy it. Kevin is Awesome!
Kevin performed for our holiday party on 12/2. He was absolutely spectacular. He was fairly priced, friendly, and most important of all, talented and professional. We cannot wait to have him back next year!
Kevin recently performed at CSUN's Farmers Market. He played the keyboard and sang a variety of holiday music. I was very please with his performance. Not only is he professional, he is also personable, accommodating, and interacted with the crowd. His music definitely spread some holiday cheer. I recommend him to everyone looking to hire a solo artist!
I hired Kevin for my birthday party. Guests were singing along, dancing, asking for his business card and figuring when they could have him perform at their parties!
He is personable, has a great voice, and is excellent on the piano! Thank you again Kevin for making my party a success!
Kevin played and sang at our wedding last weekend... He was AMAZING!!! Everyone was so impressed. Would recommend him to anyone who wants to have a high quality event. He brings his own sound system with quick set-up and tear down. He is professional and warm with guests. I can't wait for another event for him to provide entertainment.
We hired Kevin to sing at our daughter's high school graduation party. Our daughter is a huge Elton John fan, so he mostly sang Elton John songs. He was fabulous! He is an amazing pianist and singer. Everyone at the party loved him. I would hire him again for any event. Thank you Kevin for making this such a special day for our daughter!
We hired Kevin to sing Beatles songs for our mom's 70th birthday surprise party. We reviewed/interviewed a lot of musicians and Kevin was by far the best! He was very fast to respond to all our inquiries, was reasonably priced and very positive and just a really nice guy. Kevin came early to set everything up and instinctively knew when to start playing after the big surprise. His smooth vocals filled the house and all the kids were dancing and adults were singing. Near the end of the party, Kevin changed things up a bit and took requests from the guests. My personal favorites were Hallelujah and Hey Jude. The man can sing!! We would highly recommend Kevin to anyone looking for a classy musician with a velvet voice. We would absolutely hire Kevin again in a heartbeat!
Kevin showed up on time and gave us a truly wonderful performance. I'm sure we'll be asking him back for future events. 5 stars!!!
Kevin was our choice for entertainment at our daughter's law school graduation party. He was amazing! He performed popular current music that appealed to our daughter's friends as well as performing classic hits that our generation knew and loved. At the end of the night everyone told us how much they enjoyed his music. Kevin has a beautiful voice and he is an incredibly talented artist.
Kevin agreed to my event on Christmas Day and was an excellent communicator as far as getting everything organized for the party. He showed up right on time and promptly setup in the living room where my piano was. To say the least everyone was blown away when they walked in to find Kevin playing and singing away. He was more than accommodating for all the song requests. I give Kevin 10 out of 10 stars across the board! The only problem now is, I have a set a high standard for next years Christmas party LOL. Thanks again Kevin!
Kevin was superb. We had Kevin perform at our home Holiday party. He has a wonderful voice and kept the guests involved by playing many of their requested songs. Many guests complimented on Kevin's performance. We will certainly have him perform again in the future.
Kevin played and sang at my Christmas Party and it really made the celebration a great success. People are constantly commenting on how fantastic he was and what a difference he made at the party.
My husband and I hired Kevin to play piano/sing at my mom's birthday party at our home in October. Kevin was outstanding. He was professional, on time, very pleasant to work with, and extremely talented! I gave Kevin a list of my mom's favorite songs before the party (from several eras) and he was able to perform ALL of them perfectly. My mom was thrilled. We all had so much fun. I would highly recommend Kevin for your next party!
Kevin Laurence was extremely professional and even more entertaining. He had an excellent knowledge of great songs and by the end of the evening (and after a few drinks) we were singing along and having the time of our lives. Thanks Kevin for making our party so much fun!
We hired Kevin for a birthday party and he was absolutely spectacular. His vocal and piano abilities are stunning and he is as friendly as they come. I'd hire Kevin again in a heartbeat and would recommend you do the same!
We had Kevin entertained at my partner 50th Birthday party. From the beginning until the end, all friends and families were "Wow" by Kevin performance. They all were very complimentary of Kevin's voice, music, and song selections!! Some of our friends were start singing together..and everyone really had a great time.. Kevin also very nice and responded promptly to any of our requests or questions from the time we contacted him until the end of the party. I knew that some friends will contact Kevin in the near future. We were so lucky to have Kevin performed and entertained at our party. It was the Best decision. We highly recommend Kevin toanyone.. !, thanks so much, Kevin...
Booking Kevin Laurence for my birthday party was a decision that I am so happy to have made. He was extremely friendly and amendable to all song requests by me and my guests. It was really hard to stump him on a song he didn't know.
Kevin works with you to figure out exactly what you're looking for in terms of music and style. During his performance, he engaged with all the guests by playing from both a set list and requests. I've used DJ's for parties in the past but nothing can replace having a LIVE PERFORMANCE!!!!
Would definitely hire him again.
We hired Kevin to play the cocktail hour at our wedding. We told him the songs we wanted to hear, and he showed up ready to play them! His sound is fantastic! Such a sweet guy too. We can't wait to hire him again for another party!
